Patient medical records and imaging
A record of the care patients receive is retained in our secure electronic medical record. These records are kept in strict confidence and are not released without the patient's written consent, except as required by law.
Mayo Clinic patients can access their medical information in two ways.
Free secure online record access
Create an online account through Patient Online Services for free record access. Many patients prefer this option due to cost and convenience.
- Go to www.MayoClinic.org and click "Log in to Patient Account" in the upper right corner and request a new account.
- Complete the one-time account creation process online.
Creating your own account gives you access 24/7 to a select set of medical records (i.e., lab results and radiology reports, clinical notes, medication list, allergy list, vaccinations) as well as your patient itinerary (schedule). You may print your own copies of this information whenever you choose at no cost.
Patent Online Services is available both via mobile app (iPhone, Android) and web browser.
